Historic & Heritage Sites

The historic sites around Williams Lake encompass the mystery of First Nations, the struggle of the early settlers, the heyday of the Gold Rush, and the romance and ruggedness of pioneering cowboys.
Chief William Heritage Site
Located at the south end of Williams Lake on Highway 97 is the Chief William Heritage Site and RV Park, featuring a reconstructed pit house and an impressive log and timber arbor, which seats more than a thousand people under it, and is used for powwow/gatherings. Named for Secwepemc Chief Will Yum (some believe the city is named for this Chief, though others believe it is named for William Pinchbeck), the site is home to the First Nation Williams Lake band's annual contests and Father's Day powwow. Visitors and locals are welcome to join these events.
